    This is a play on the IOWA ST. CYCLONES for our CFB Saturday Afternoon Dominator. Optimism is extremely high in Ames this season. Since 1996, only four Iowa St. teams have finished league play with a winning record. During Matt Campbell's four-year tenure, the Cyclones have achieved this feat three seasons in a row. They are loaded with 13 returning starters including quarterback Brock Purdy who led an offense that ranked second in 2019 in the Big 12 with an average of 311.3 ypg through the air while running back Breece Hall rushed for 897 yards as a freshman, averaging just over 100 ypg over his last eight games. While the defense was not great last season, they should be a much more improved unit this year with nine starters back. Iowa St. went 7-6 last season but three of those losses were by a combined four points and those were against Iowa, Baylor and Oklahoma. Louisiana is no pushover as it went 9-3 and has a ton of experience coming back but the talent gap between the two rosters is pretty big. The offense is loaded once again but the loss of two key offensive linemen will be felt hard. Louisiana is 1-7 under Billy Napier when going under 200 yards rushing and has lost ten of its last 11 when it fails to get there. Here, we play on favorites of 10.5 to 21 points that averaged 6.4 or more yppl last season, with an experienced quarterback returning as starter. This situation is 36-12 ATS (75 percent) over the last 10 seasons. 9* (416) Iowa St. Cyclones
